The month of May brought exciting news to Vee Quiva Hotel & Casino, as they were awarded the esteemed AAA Four Diamond Award. By meeting strict criteria measuring all aspects of service and amenities, Vee Quiva Hotel & Casino has proven to be among the top hotel properties in Arizona and has earned the award in its first year of operation.
“We are honored to be awarded this prestigious designation,” said General Manager, Jeff Martin. “The team here at Vee Quiva Hotel & Casino has diligently worked hard since our opening to provide the best guest experience in the valley with the highest quality amenities. This recognition shows that tremendous effort has not gone unnoticed.”
The AAA Diamond Rating process is North America’s premier hotel rating program. The program provides one of the industry’s most reliable ratings to guide lodging decisions for vacationers and business travelers in the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean. This is measured by the degree of hospitality, service, amenities and attention to detail a property offers its guests. The system provides hotel guests with a quick and dependable rating on service levels at thousands of hotel properties both locally and internationally.
“AAA developed the Diamond rating system more than 75 years ago as a travel resource. It is one of the only rating systems that include on-site evaluations by anonymous inspectors,” said Linda Gorman, Communications and Public Affairs Director for AAA Arizona. “Earning a Five or Four Diamond Award is one of the highest accolades in the travel industry.” In fact, out of over 29,000 approved AAA properties worldwide, only 5.3% are awarded the four diamond designation.
Vee Quiva Hotel & Casino is one of three casinos owned and operated by the Gila River Indian Community. Opened in July of 2013, the property includes over 950 slot machines, 36 table games, 90 well-appointed hotel rooms, over 6,000 square feet of conference space, the Vee Quiva Event Center and 6 dining options headlined by Arizona’s only Ditka’s restaurant.
